Save me, O God (Psalm 69:1,3,7,10,13-14) – John Blow

John Blow

Psalm 69:1,3,7,10,13-14

Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.

I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.

Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.

10 When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.

13 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O Lord, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.

14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.


Save me, O God, composed by John Blow (1649-1708)

Performed by Eteläsuomalaisen Osakunnan Laulajat / EOL Chamber Choir

Psalm 69:29; Exodus 34:6-7 [German]

29 But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.

And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
